Physiotherapy & Physical Therapy

calgary physio therapy clinicsPhysiotherapists are movement specialists!  We are the first people you should see if your mobility is limited due to injury, arthritis, deconditioning, or disease.

Physiotherapy or physical therapy is a health profession concerned with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of disease and disability through physical means.

Physiotherapists act as primary care providers (you can access physiotherapy without a doctor’s referral).  As primary care providers at Bonavista Physical Therapy, we are trained to assess if your problem is musculoskeletal (MSK) and if so,  develop a rehabilitation plan.   If it is determined your problem is NOT MSK, we will refer you to the appropriate care provider.  We strive to work in partnership with other medical professionals.

Initially a physiotherapist will conduct an assessment of the patient’s medical history and then go into an objective examination.  This is done to rule out serious problems, establish functional limitations, refine the diagnosis, guide therapy and establish a baseline to monitor progress.  Guided by the findings the physical therapist will develop a treatment plan which may include exercise, manual techniques, soft tissue massage, electro-physical agents, and most importantly; patient education, all of which are reviewed and refined as needed. The physiotherapist and client work together to establish and reach goals of treatment.
